The November Meeting is the first major meeting of the Jump racing season. It's true that all roads lead to The Festival, but the magic starts at The November Meeting. 

 

Join us on Friday 15th November as Countryside Day launches The November Meeting in true Cheltenham style. Alongside the incredible racing action, there's a host of countryside interests to keep you entertained including hound parades. The Wurzels will be performing in The Centaur after racing, free for Club/Tattersalls racegoers. 

 

The November Meeting featuring the BetVictor Gold Cup on Saturday 16th November is a real autumnal treat and is the biggest raceday at Cheltenham outside of The Cheltenham Festival. A mix of experts, enthusiasts and novice racegoers make for a compelling atmosphere, perfect for groups and celebrations. After racing, The Wandering Wings will be performing in The Centaur, free for Club and Tattersalls racegoers. 

 

On Sunday 17th November, The November Meeting Sunday will be another fantastic day of racing, and Cheltenham's only Sunday raceday. The day will also include our Family Fun Zone, where under 18s attend racing for free and be kept entertained with complementary activities.

 

With live music, shopping and must-see horseracing, The November Meeting is unmissable. Book your tickets in advance for the best price and save.

Don't miss out...

 

Lee Humphreys, a surgeon at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, has been looking after jockeys on racedays for over a decade. Over the course of last season, he undertook a project to capture images of those who work at Cheltenham Racecourse, both permanent and raceday staff.  The stunning images have been collated into an exhibition for racegoers to enjoy.

 

Lee's photography exhibition will be hosted on all three days of The November Meeting, with donations towards Racing Welfare, who support those who work in the racing industry. 

 

The exhibition will be held in the Club and Tattersalls enclosure, don't miss out on seeing his outstanding work.
